    I have to declare an interest as I know the owner. That said I am being as honest as possible. The Guesthouse is slightly out of the centre but is still only 400 yards from the night market and a short walk to the riverside. On a map look for the local Governors office and the GH is just opposite.

    Should you be a light sleeper I suggest you get a room at the back as there is some road noise. There are good restaurants and cafes nearby and the little pho shop two doors down stays open late and sells cold beer.

    The GH itself is well built and nicely finished the rooms are spacious and well furnished. Bathrooms are a good size with quality fittings and excellent showers with plenty of hot water and a good pressure. he airconditioning is effective and modern so fairly quiet. Flat screen TV on the wall has more than 40 channels inc BBC world and CNN. I like the fact that they have bedside lights so that you do not have to get up to turn the lights out!

    Breakfast iserved in the lobby nd is the usual Lao fare. Fried Eggs or Omlette Bread or Croissant butter and Jam. Plate of fruit and tea or coffee. The staff are helpful and attentive although some do not have much English.

    ... Ian and Lar arrived to have brekky at our restaurant too. So they joined us and we got chatting. We went off and did our thing meanwhile Cherie and Jenny went off and did theirs. Jenny and Cherie went off to the COPE museum, there was lots of legs but it was about the war and America dropped zillions of cluster bombs and people sustained lots of injuries. This place has a rehabilitation centre which assists with these injuries plus people who ...

    ... of comfort. Su on the other hand can practically lie down with her space and couldn't seem to understand my problem. The bus journey was torturous, we couldn't even bring ourselves to watch prison break as it was so bumpy with the roads being dreadful. During the first leg Su suddenly felt one of her urges 'to go' which I found hysterical. We got of the bus with about an hour to go and went and got some food to try and settle the travel sickness to no avail. Back on ...

    ... like this again. Despite my complaining, it was actually an amazing couple of days. We completed the two 15km days and spent the evenings with our group and guide, Noy, who really was brilliant. Our jungle stay accommodation was basic but greatly helped by the Laos Whisky Noy had brought with him and the full lunar eclipse that happened on night 2! The food was brilliant, it's amazing what the guides can knock up using a basic campfire and torchlight - always showing ...

    ... during the Vietnam war (American war if you are from Vietnam) than all bombs dropped during World War ll. More than 580,000 sorties were flown, the equivalent of one every 8 minutes for 9 years. There are still poor rural people losing limbs on a daily basis; many of them are children. It was an emotional but good experience. A few brave crews of men and women are working to remove the UXO and there is hope as this is a finite problem, but it is slow dangerous ...

    ... much money. We are now awaiting our bus that will take us to our next country: Vietnam. The journey will take about 24 hours before it eventually arrives in Hanoi in the North. We are both excited about Vietnam because we've heard very good things! We will work our way down the east coast of the country, seeing some sand and sea for the first time on this trip! Hopefully the journey will be a lot smoother than the previous couple! Speak soon Rob and Chelsea ...
